Abstract

This paper examines why the Toronto Board of Management was created and why it is unique based on the recollections and thoughts of the researcher and other significant players in the changes to governance that were made in the 1990s. The findings reveal that the Board of Management had rapid success in such a short amount of time because politicians and bureaucrats trusted each other, the areas of responsibility were clearly defined, and the governance system was designed to foster creative and thoughtful solutions.
